10 days prior to surgery
No aspirin, Advil, Motrin, alcohol, vitamins, vitamin E (in particular), steroids, cortisone creams, green tea, or smoking!!!
All of these can make you bleed more and make the surgery much harder and possibly less successful. Pick up your prescriptions and bring them to the office with you the day of surgery. If you don’t have them, call the office and give us your pharmacy phone number to call them in to. You will get a pain medicine, antibiotic, and a couple of Valium pills to relax you the morning of surgery.
